Antibiotics are hardly ever used after root canal treatment and are reserved for special cases. You can very well choose to go with a full ceramic crown..if your current dentist does not provide those restorations, find one who will. Sensation after surgery recovers based on extent of the nerve trauma. On an average it takes a minimum of 6 weeks and more.

After rct, antibiotic prescription is not must.only if you there is infection we advice. Tongue numbness may be there for 2to 3hrs till anesthesia effect wears off. U can definitely go for ceramic crowns and for better looks zirconia crowns are the best.
